Etymology

The Mechan-o'-wyrm's name possibly serves two meanings: a cliche naming convention towards devices stating what the monster is while trying to sound technical, and a pun on the phrase can of worms. A wyrm is a type of dragon, with the name telling of its mechanical nature, while a can of worms refers to something that can cause problems, something that a Mechan-o'-wyrm is more than capable of doing.
